The proposed FY14 budget will consolidate federal K-12 STEM education funding from 50+ agencies into only three: the National Science Foundation, Department of Education, and Smithsonian. Under the proposed budget, K-12 programs at the National Institutes of Health – including the Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA) will be ELIMINATED.
